Course: #98Level: Intermediate1 Hour 33 Reviews
Recorded Webinar

This course will explore the relationship between speech production and spoken language ability for the young child using a cochlear implant. Beginning with the premise that speech production is the outward manifestation of a child's competence in spoken language, similarities and differences between these two terms will be identified. Strategies for creating early intervention activities that recognize the importance of following developmental norms will be presented with an emphasis on the role that auditory access with a cochlear implant plays in the process.
